4 stars "Morrisson Hotel" is the 5th full-length studio album by rock act The Doors. After what many fans (not me though) consider to be the weakest Doors album "The Soft Parade (1969)", The Doors returned in 1970 with a more straight forward sounding album without the inclusion of brass and strings. Features that in many peopleīs opinion had scarred "The Soft Parade (1969)".

The music on "Morrisson Hotel" is again in the trademark bluesy psychadelic rock style that The Doors had such great success with on the first three albums but with an emphasis on the blues. Songs like "Roadhouse Blues" (well thatīs kinda self- explanatory right?) and "Spy" are very bluesy in style but there are also plenty of psychadelic influenced pop/ rock tracks on the album. Standout tracks are the above mentioned "Roadhouse Blues" and of course "Waiting For The Sun" but as ususal on all Doors albums even the more average songs are of a high quality.

The production is excellent. Organic and professional. The best sound quality on a Doors album up until then.

"Morrisson Hotel" is the fifth high quality album in a row from The Doors and I canīt give less than a 4 star (80%) rating for this excellent album.

UMUR | 4/5 |
